Here is SPLA group at The Topanga Banjo Fiddle Contest as part of their semester final! This group met for weekly 2 hour sessions, with SPLA founder and instuctor Jacob Szekely and won 3rd place spot (1st went to the band from UCLA – The Blue Grasshoppers and 2nd went to the band from Oregon -The Deep End Ranchers). Steep competition this year but the girls did great under the direction of Jacob Szekely, co-founder of String Project | Los Angeles
